He is the only career soldier ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize. His military genius led the Allies to victory in World War II, and his far-flung vision helped engineer the peace that followed.
George C. Marshall may well be the most influential figure of the century. He was so vital to America's effort in World War II that FDR said, ''I could not sleep if I did not know that George Marshall was in Washington.'' Churchill called him ''the true organizer of victory.'' Through extensive expert interviews, rare archival footage and contemporary accounts, the life and career of this monumental figure come to life. In a rare interview, Colin Powell talks about Marshall's brilliance in preparing America for war and laying out the grand strategy. See footage of Marshall receiving the Nobel Peace Prize for his Plan for European Recovery better known as the Marshall Plan. And discover why both FDR and Eisenhower agreed that Marshall would have been the greatest president America had ever seen.
